1.0 out of 5 stars defective - mono sound 18 May 2014
The original DVD version was in stereo but this is in mono. This is a manufacturing problem by Kultur/Warner (they are identical). I had the exact same problem with their blu-ray issues of the 1995 Don Carlos and The new 1997 Vick Manon Lescaut Blu-ray from Glyndebourne - mono sound. I gave it one star to draw attention to Kultur's abysmal standards. Beware of any future Kultur/Warner re-releases in blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great opera 1 July 2014
A compelling opera full of drama and humour which grips the viewer from first to last. The performance is outstanding with a tremendously strong cast. It was good to see Robert Tear as Hauk. Don't come here for Puccini type arias - it is not that sort of opera, but if you liked The Cunning Little Vixen, you will love this. The sound level dips briefly a couple of times, which loses the recording one star, but the production cannot be faulted otherwise. A bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Class remaster of Top Class production 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This Channel 4 broadcast of the Glyndebourne production from 1995 was very highly praised and still retains that today. If this was not in 4:3 and LPSM Stereo you would say it was only a few years old and to me surpasses some of the HD productions from the Met in respect of picture and, yes, sound. Although I am not a fan of the cardboard, instead of plastic, packaging at this price a total bargain for an excellent performance from all the cast. As per the blurb "Anja electrifying performance..a perfect example of just what video opera can and ought to be". Video Director Brian Large - need anymore be said.
